LIG AL01: Malpaís del Norte


Basaltic lava flows, mainly aa type, fragmented in blocks with numerous cracked tumulus, longitudinally and transversally, from the eruptive fissure of Montaña Lobos, from the Pleistocene Era. Over these lava flows, there are hydromagmatic pyroclastic density currents from the hydromagmatic caldera. On the lower areas, closed endorheic depressions have developed de forming ephemeral, not very [...]

GR03 Montaña Amarilla


This is the only building in La Graciosa almost fully formed by palagonitised deposits of clearly marked hydromagmatic features, with abundant pyroclastic structures associated with surtseyan eruptive mechanisms. The hydromagmatic materials are crowned by strombolian volcanic products with lava fall and emission deposits towards the north, through a horseshoe crater open in that direction. Many [...]

LZ01 Zona paleontológica de Órzola


Includes several paleontological sites related to sand deposits. The fossils are on ancient dunes stratigraphically located among the basaltic miocene lava flows and under basaltic pliocene lava flows. The calcareous sand deposits are inter-stratificated with alluvial deposits. The sites of Valle Grande, Valle Chico and Fuente de Gusa stand out. In those deposits there are [...]
